in our nations capital under the shadow of the great emancipator to awaken america's long slumber conscience. we rightly and best remember dr. king's soaring oratory that day. how he gave mighty voice to the quiet hopes of millions, how he offered a salvation path for oppressed and oppressors alike. his words belong to the ages. possessing a power and prophecy unmatched in our time. but we would do well to recall that day itself also belonged to those ordinary people whose names never appeared in the history books. never got on tv. many have gone to segregated schools and sat at segregated lunch counters. they lived in towns where they couldn't vote and cities where their votes didn't matter. there were couples in love who couldn't marry. soldiers who fought for freedom abroad that they found denied to them at home. they had seen loved ones beaten. and children fire hosed. and they had every reason to lash out in anger or resign themselves to a bitter fate. and yet they chose a different path. in the face of hatred they prayed for their tormentors. in the face of violence they sto

to the credibility and the future interests of the united states of america and our allies. it matters because a lot of other countries whose policies challenge these international norms are watching. they are watching. they want to see whether the united states and our friends mean what we say. it is directly related to our credibility and whether countries still believe the united states, when it says something. they are watching to see if syria can get away with it because then maybe they, too, can put the world at greater risk. and make no mistake, in an increasingly complex world of sectarian and religious extremist violence what, we choose to do or not do matters in real ways to our own security. some cite the risk of doing things, but we need to ask what is the risk of doing nothing? it matters because if we choose to live in a world where a thug and a murder er like bashar assd can gas thousands of his own people with impunity, even after the united states and our allies said no and then the world does nothing about it, there will be no end to the tested of our resolve and the dangers that w

lack of doing anything other than lob a couple of cruz missiles down range. they'll worry about america's commitment to the middle east will say this is the best they can do? so i'm a bit confused, like all of us are, about what the administration is trying to do. >> yeah. syria, if this is the best punch they can throw, i'm sure syria can take it. just my thought. i expressed this last night. i'm no military expert, lord knows. if we're going to bomb, why don't we take out the government palaces, the government office buildings, military barracks, various military hears. why don't we make it plain that we're going in to take out the chemical weapons. apparently we have weapons that can do that. maybe the army in syria will get so darn angry that they'll take assad, put him in jail or even worse, assassinate him. do you see what i'm saying in why aren't we hitting everything along the way instead of making light of this? why don't we hit tremendous shocks and punches rather than weany jabs? >> that was the point i was making in my column today. we should be striking the symbols, the phy

products two years ago. now we're the largest exporter in the world. in fact, bank of america and merrill lynch estimates this u.s. exports doubled from the end of 2007 until the end of last year. the major reason is diesel fuel. a strong demand for that product especially in emerging markets. the u.s. exported about 1 million barrels a day of diesel fuel last week, roughly the same we've seen the previous few weeks but up from 840,000 earlier this summer, and the reason for this is that diesel margins are higher than gas margins. as of the mid-year, margins on gulf coast produced diesel were running just above $16 for barrel while for finished gasoline they were just under $8 a barrel. that's roughly double, according to valero. many refiners have done simple things to change their product mix, shell, marathon petroleum and also valero expanding their export terminals ald of and noting that the gulf coast refiners are benefitting from this trend over the east coast refiners. the shipping costs are preventing the east coast refiners from tapping into the domestic oil supplies which is che

are not hurt by this, right? >> not expected to be, but here's what happened. bank of america suffered one of these outages, in the -- they had late fees and a lot of other fees that came in because they couldn't get to a bank branch. ultimately they will suspect this will be similar, just a flood of traffic. >> so traffic snarl that shuts down the highway, basically? >> absolutely not. >> they could siphon money out of these accounts, couldn't they? >> yes, it's embarrassing to have your website down for an hour, but it's potentially reputably damaging if your account is lost. >> kay larks thanks very much. >>> sue, down to you. >> we're talking about savings down here as well, ty. because if you've ever asked yourself, will my savings last when i retire, you're probably not alone. according to black rock, nearly 66% of americans are really terrified of losing that steady paycheck once they hit the age of 75. the other amount will not know how much they or their and fund which attacking the amount of income. in a "power lunch" exclusive, robert capido. >> you know, i was looking at all th

is russia needs america more than america needs russia. it's important to have good relations, but just as american leaders talk to counterparts in china, even though the chinese are actual spying on the americans and doing all kinds of other thing, the whole point about diplomacy is having tough conversations and that's what, at the moment, unfortunately, obama is not having. >> all right. thank you so much. we appreciate your time. we'll be watching the developments here. >>> we'll take a short break and then look at the we appreciate your time. we'll be watching the kechblths here. we'll take a short break and look at the markets for tomorrow. will the dow snap. market action back in a moment. . and at the center of it all is a surprisingly low price -- just $7.95. in fact, fidelity gives you lower trade commissions than schwab, td ameritrade, and etrade. i'm monica santiago of fidelity investments, and low fees and commissions are another reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. >>> lots of economic data to dye adjust tomorrow
. the financial times reporting also that bank of america was the only other bank to avoid a down day in the first quarter of the year. >> amc networks trades under amcx. that's the symbol. >> independent company. good for them. a little news on nelson peltz this morning. a july 31st investor letter, obtained by cnbc, shows that trian partners on shore funds return eed 11.8% year to date, that's up .4% in the second quarter. the fund says the second quarter performance was like a duck on the surface but paddling furiously underneath. also talks about how the firm completed a raise in june for an undisclosed investment, delivering alpha last month, we reported the trian took a stake in dupont. unclear if that's the same investment that they're referring to as sort of mystery investment. but our own manit hoja obtaining these letters from all the hedge funds. >> what is funny about the letters is they're all touting returns up 12%, up 13%. the dow is up 18%. the dow doesn't take 2 and 20. the dow can be had at the low cost index fund for 25 basis points. these guys are all -- most of them are under
around the world, i want to make clear once again that america is not interested in spying on ordinary people. our intelligence is focused, above all, on finding the information that's necessary to protect our people, and in many cases, protect our allies. it's true, we have significant capabilities. what's also true is we show a restraint that many governments around the world don't even think to do, refuse to show. that includes, by the way, some of america's most vocal critics. we shouldn't forget the difference between the ability of our government to collect information online under strict guidelines, and for narrow purposes, and the willingness of some other governments to throw their own citizens in prison for what they say online. and let me close with one additional thought. the men and women of our intelligence community work every single day to keep us safe, because they love this country and believe in our values. they're patriots. and i believe that those who have lawfully raised their voices on behalf of privacy and civil liberties are also patriots who love our country a
, jpmorgan, even bank of america. i think they're in that unique sweet spot where if the economy really gets hot, the stocks will do well. they always do. if we keep chugging along like this, i think the stocks can do well, because they're getting more and more efficient. they're focused on that. the risk is, do we have another collapse in the economy? i don't see that coming. so i would definitely stay with the money center banks, the large caps. as you move into some of the regionals and smallers, you know, they've had 50% runs over the last 18 month, really had an amazing run. i think it's less attractive there. i'll still constructive on the space. you know, second half of last year, i'd say sandler o'neil was bullish on banks and financials. right now, we're still bullish, but not maybe jumping up and down as much as we were. >> what about you, anton? you go to the big guys or the regions? >> i like the bar bell approach. i agree completely with jeff on the big guys. the small guys, i'm a stock picker, so looking for activity. looking for deals that add value. looking for smart companie
to america's global prowess and strategic influence. if we lose that influence the likelihood that the dollar will lose reserve status increases and gold is an insurance policy against that eventuality. >> got it. >> i would agree with both of those excellent points. i would add maybe some financial haven demand because i think people are starting to wonder about the recovery in earnings and the economy so there is just that traditional financial safe haven movement into gold. >> what do you tell people? you're an equity advisor. do you tell them a little bit of gold, some gold? everybody ought to have some? >> we have always been in the little bit of gold camp. i think having a 1% to 5% bullion allocation can add diversification to a portfolio. by the same token, gold is extremely volatile as we have all seen. we don't think it's something that really warrants a massive allocation like you would fixed income or equities but i think it can play a role and we do like it tactically given the carnage we have seen year to date. >> i have been very vocal late june, i was a screaming bull on gold.
each day. i was a chemistry major in college, and then... i joined teach for america. that's the reason i'm here. >> when to buy? when to sell? it's all about time. that's right, you could have the best stock picks in the world, it wouldn't mean a thing for your portfolio if you didn't have a sense of timing. i am a believer that non-professionals can manage the money just as well as the pros, sometimes better. that's why i come out to teach. you may have heard from the naysayers, intelligencia, it's possible to beat the market and outperform the benchmarks, that's like the s&p 500, as long as you know what you are doing and think like a disciplined investor rather than a gambler. if you are devoted and inclined to learn about stocks, my experience is that you will most likely beat many money managers and you will be able to take taxable gains and losses when they suit you, not the manager, a very important issue concerning the importance of taxes and long-term performance. right? a huge part of knowing what you are doing is having decent timing or knowing enough to make, not to make bo
. coming up, the former head of investment banking at lehman brothers, skip mcgee, now ceo for the americas barclays. we'll have his reaction to the federal reserve. >>> plus, ken is my special guest co-host for the hour. we'll talk housing, regulation, and what he thinks of today's activist investors. you're watching the "closing bell" on cnbc, first in business worldwide. 20 years with the company. thousands of presentations. and one hard earned partnership. it took a lot of work to get this far. so now i'm supposed to take a back seat when it comes to my investments? there's zero chance of that happening. avo: when you work with a schwab financial consultant, you'll get the guidance you need with the control you want. talk to us today. and then another. and another. and if you do it. and your friends do it. and their friends do it... soon we'll be walking our way to awareness, support and an end to alzheimer's disease. and that? that would be big. grab your friends and family and start a team today. register at alz.org >>> welcome back. a tough market day today, down 105. my special gues
of all the ones that i'm covering in america's secrets for why you're able to do that and to accelerate store growth? >> i'm proud we could do it quarter after quarter after quarter. our same store sales are up and we're building more and more restaurants every day. innovation, cost savings, drive the top line, run a better restaurant for the guest and remodel your restaurants so they look spectacular for the eating experience. >> when you model, you're picking up a bunch of percentages at comp stores so it's additive the money you put it in. >> absolutely. we see a lift in the restaurant when it remodels that's huge for the business and the customers are staying in the dining room longer and enjoying popeyes more. >> now, 40% go into 60% in terms of remodel. so therefore, you have a clear road map for next year too. >> absolutely. by the end of this year, 60% of the system will be remodeled and it will be close to 80% by the end of next year. we are excited about the transformation of our system. >> people don't think of innovation when it comes to food, but you're trying to do enterta
on that is that every athlete should get paid the same thing, maybe $200 a week. every school in america, $200 a week allowance, plus the free food, plus the free books. and then they are getting paid, and then we can eliminate the conversation of whether athletes should get paid. everybody, across the board, gets $200 a week, $800 a month. that's it. >> i mean, you know, part of the issue was this ed o'bannon suit where they felt like they were being taken advantage of by the companies putting their images on videogames and things, and they weren't being compensated for that. are college athletes being taken advantage of in what has become a huge business, and that would be college athletics? >> well, i mean, i wouldn't say they're being taken advantage of. it's a whole -- it's a whole athletics-economics thing we could always go through, we could always debate. you know, we bring in money. the fans pay money. you know, it's the whole thing that, you know, we could talk about for a long period of time. to eliminate the conversation about whether college athletes should get paid, every athlete in col
.s. secretary of state john kerry stating it is america's conclusion that syria used chemical weapons. >> and despite the excuses and equalify indications that some have manufactured, it is undeniable. president obama believes there must be accountable for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. nothing today is more serious and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny. >> the pentagon tells nbc news, larry, that tonight five u.s. warships with cruise missile firing capability, four destroyers, one submarine are stationed in the mediterranean sea. the u.n. inspectors did get in the sites, but they get in so late, experts say, they may not be able to get the kind of residue tests needed to verify the use of chemical weapons, so the obama administration's move past that. it says it's happened. now comes the reaction. larry, back to you. >> many thanks, steve handlesman. we appreciate it. >>> it's virtually certain that u.s. military force will be used. the question -- what will the attack look like? second question, will it over
